A Mongolian witness told the Shah Alam High Court today that political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda had threatened to kill her, Altantuya Shaariibuu and another friend.Namiraa Gerelmaa, 23, said following this threat, Altantuya and their friend Uuriintuya Gal Orchir had lodged a police report on the afternoon of Oct 19, 2006.She said the threatening message was related to them by Abdul Razak’s private investigator P Balasubramaniam and his assistant K Suras Kumar.“Suras Kumar and Balasubramaniam threatened to kill us, to throw us out of the window. Every night, around 3am to 5am, Suras came to the hotel (Malaya) and forcefully knocked on the door to enter our room,” she said during the examination-in-chief by Deputy Public Prosecutor Manoj Kurup.She also said that she knew Altantuya had been under a lot of pressure “thinking that she is under threat that she would be killed.”

Namiraa also revealed that Suras had entered the room which Namiraa, Altantuya and Uuriintuya shared several times.

“One morning at 5am, Suras knocked on the door forcefully and he came into the room. He then slept in one of our beds until 10am.

“We were so scared that we didn’t sleep and stood in our room the whole time,” she said via Mongolian interpreter Engkhjargal Tsetsgee.

Manoj then asked if Suras was ever friendly to any one of them and she replied with a stern ‘No’.

“Every time he came (to see us), he said ‘Razak Baginda sent me to kill you’. That is why it has been unpleasant,” she explained.

‘Visit her boyfriend’

During cross examination Abdul Razak’s counsel Wong Kiang Kheong asked Namiraa why did Altantuya continue to look for his client at his house despite the harassment from Suras and Balasubramaniam and lodging a police report against them.

“I don’t know,” she answered but said she was worried when Altantuya decided to go to Abdul Razak’s house alone on the night of Oct 19.

Wong also quizzed Namiraa about her flight tickets which she answered that all three of them had purchased their return air tickets before entering Malaysia as tourists.

“I came to visit Malaysia and to find out about studying a language course. My mother paid for my ticket,” she pointed out.

Asked to relate her conversation with Altantunya before leaving Mongolia, she said: “Altantuya told me that she was coming (to Malaysia) to visit her boyfriend but never told me his name. I also did not ask for it.”

Namiraa also said that she did not know about Altantuya demanding US$500,000 and three air tickets to Mongolia from Abdul Razak.

Last Tuesday, first prosecution witness Balasubramaniam told the court that Altantuya had made those demands from Abdul Razak two days before she was murdered

Today was Namiraa’s second day to be called to the witness stand. She was first called to the stand last Friday.

The courtroom remained packed on the sixth day of the trial.

Accused Abdul Razak appeared cheerful and sported a new cropped hair-do. He was seen using an electric shaver before the hearing started at 9:30am when judge Mohd Zaki Md Yasin entered.

Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri, 30, and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, 35, from the police Special Action Squad are charged with murdering translator Altantuya, 28, at a location between lots 12843 and 16735, Mukim Bukit Raja, here between 10pm on Oct 19 and 1am on Oct 20 last year.

Abdul Razak, 46, is charged with abetting them between 9.54am on Oct 18 last year and 9.45pm the following day in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur.

证人:或获短讯通知单独赴会
死者不顾力劝坚持重返拉萨家

“如果我单独前去

,他就会见我。”

与蒙古女郎炸尸案死者阿旦杜亚一同前来马来西亚的友人乌里杜雅(Uuriintuya Gal Orchir)指出

,尽管她与阿旦杜亚的表妹娜米拉(Namiraa Gerelmaa)曾经力劝阿旦杜亚不要单独重返阿都拉萨的住家

,但是阿旦却坚信说若自己单独赴会,两人必定能够会晤。

这也是乌里杜雅和娜米拉,最后一次见到阿旦杜亚。过后她就在阿都拉萨的住家前宣告失踪。

乌里杜雅是本案的第四证人,她今日在沙亚南高庭上接受马诺兹(Manoj Kurup)副检察司的盘问时表示,在去年10月19日晚上,她与娜米拉先陪同阿旦杜亚前往白沙罗欲会见阿都拉萨不果,不得不折返酒店。过后,阿旦杜亚向两人表示,她要单独乘坐德士,再次到白沙罗去会见阿都拉萨。

“我告诉她不要去,要去就一起去,但是她当时正在操作手机,可能已经接获短讯通知她要单独前去。我要她与我们一起去,但是她却坚持说,若一个人去,就可以见到他(阿都拉萨)。”

“她向我们说“如果我单独去,他就会见我”,她当时非常有信心,认为若一个人去就能够见到他。”

根据本案第一证人,即阿都拉萨聘请的私家侦探巴拉(P Balasubramaniam)上周供证时表示,当晚阿旦杜亚抵达阿都拉萨的住家后仍无法见到阿都拉萨,最后遭三名警察以一辆红色威拉载走。

其中两名警察就是本案的第一被告阿兹拉哈德里(Azilah Hadri)以及第二被告西鲁阿兹哈乌玛(Sirul Azhar Umar),他们被控于当晚10时至第二天凌晨1时谋杀阿旦杜亚。阿都拉萨则被控唆使两人杀死阿旦杜亚。

苏拉斯5次闯入酒店房间

乌里杜雅今日的供证内容与娜米拉大同小异,都指阿都拉萨委派巴拉和其助手苏拉斯(Suras Kumar)恐吓要杀害她们3人。

她在翻译员的协助下表示,苏拉斯曾经闯入她们的酒店房间多达5次,最后一次却遭到酒店的工作人员的阻止,不允许他踏入她们下榻的马来亚酒店。

“我不明白英文,因此我就问阿旦杜亚,(阿旦杜亚告诉我们)她向苏拉斯要求让她见阿都拉萨一次,但是苏拉斯却不断威胁,说阿都拉萨要杀害她,她也不能见阿都拉萨,最好是回去蒙古,不然他将会杀死我们。”

乌里杜雅表示,之后她与阿旦杜亚在10月19日中午前往一间警局针对上述威胁报案,当时她发现苏拉斯骑着摩多在警局外徘徊,“他一看到我就离开”。

她也指称,苏拉斯不断跟踪她们3人,也一直守在马来亚酒店外。

指阿旦来马见“男朋友”

根据巴拉的供词,阿都拉萨是在去年10月雇用他,以阻止阿旦杜亚接近他和保护其家人,并跟踪阿旦杜亚在大马的行踪。

自称认识阿旦杜亚约2至3年的乌里杜雅,在确认阿旦杜亚的照片时,也忍不住流下伤心的眼泪,并以纸巾擦拭泪水。

与早前供证的娜米拉一样,乌里杜雅也表示阿旦杜亚来马的目的,是为了会见“男朋友”。

死者遇害前全身皆名牌货

此外,根据乌里杜雅今日的口供,阿旦杜亚在离开酒店单独欲前往会见阿都拉萨时,全身上下都是名牌衣物与饰品,包括黑色的Spirit外套、深蓝色的Levi’s牛仔裤、黑色的Fendi吊袋,镶有“黑色石头”的耳环、一个看开镶有钻石的戒指,以及一只手表。

马诺兹副检察司今日在法庭上要求乌里杜雅,确认阿旦杜亚在19日晚上失踪前所佩戴的手表时,法庭才发现阿旦杜亚所佩戴的是Larmes的手表。

司机给钱警察协助寻找阿旦

另一方面,法庭今日也出现让人忍俊不住的插曲。当马诺兹要求乌里杜雅确认其中一名在阿旦杜亚失踪后,要求乌里杜雅和娜米拉停止骚扰阿都拉萨住家的警察时,乌里杜雅突然反问马诺兹“你要我在他的面前说话?”让马诺兹也忍不住笑起来说“是的”。

接着乌里杜雅的言论引起哄堂大笑,“我们将钱交给德士司机,司机却当着我们的面前,把钱交给他(警察)”。

在马诺兹进一步的追问下,才发现原来“司机给钱”的一幕并非发生在10月20日乌里杜雅和娜米拉到阿都拉萨住家兴师问罪的那一晚。

乌里杜雅表示,大约是在10月23或24日时,从香港前来大马的阿旦杜亚胞妹布玛(Burmaa Oyunchimeg)把一笔钱交给德士司机,后者当着她们的面前,将钱交给一名警察,以协助寻找失踪的阿旦杜亚。

无论如何,马诺兹并没有追问此事的详情,似乎与案件关系不大。

案件将在明日续审,依然是由马诺兹盘问乌里杜雅,过后才交由辩方律师盘问。

Our entry records to M’sia deleted: Mongolian witness

A Mongolian witness told the Shah Alam High Court today that her immigration entry records into Malaysia had been deleted and she was held at the airport for two hours by immigration officers before she could leave the country.On the seventh day of the Altantuya Shaariibuu murder trial, Uuriintuya Gal Ochir, 30, was continuing her testimony before judge Mohd Zaki Yasin who had asked her when she had returned to Mongolia.

Uuriintuya had previously testified that she and a friend, Namiraa Gerelmaa, had accompanied Altantuya to Malaysia on Oct 8 last year.

Uuriintuya told the packed courtroom that while Namiraa had left for Mongolia first on Oct 24, she couldn’t do the same as her passport was with Altantuya on the night the latter went missing.

“On Nov 24, I left with Altantuya’s father Shaariibuu (Setev) but at the airport we had a problem because they (immigration officials) did not have a record of Altantuya, Namiraa or me entering the country. They said they had no data of our records. The entry was deleted in the computer.

“I was still holding my air ticket so they asked me how I came into the country […] was it by sea or by car. So I showed them my ticket that had the date of when I flew into Malaysia.”

Uuriintuya was testifying at the high-profile murder trial of Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri, 30, and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar, 35, both from the police Special Action Squad, who are charged with murdering translator Altantuya, 28, at a location between lots 12843 and 16735, Mukim Bukit Raja, between 10pm on Oct 19 and 1am on Oct 20 last year.

Political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda, 46, (pix, above left) is charged with abetting them between 9.54am on Oct 18 last year and 9.45pm the following day at Bangunan Getah Asli in Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur. All three accused face the death penalty if convicted.

Expunge request

As Uuriintuya was testifying, both the prosecution and defence teams raised their concerns over the relevance of the her information. However, despite objection by both counsel, she continued with her testimony through a translator.

“There was no record of our entry. At that time (Malaysian honorary consul-general for Mongolia) Syed Abdul Rahman Alhabshi was also following us to Mongolia.

“Two police officers took me (away) saying I came into the country illegally. I was there (at the airport) for two hours before they let me leave,” she said.

At this juncture, Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar’s counsel Kamarul Hisham Kamaruddin requested the court to expunge Uuriintuya’s remarks but was turned down.

“The ruling is that you don’t need to cross-examine her and this will not be expunged. It will remain here (on record),” ruled Justice Zaki.

Following this exchange, Uuriintuya got up and told her translator to tell the judge that ‘she wanted to say something’.

She then proceeded to reiterate to the court that there was no record of the three of them coming to Malaysia via Beijing. “It had been deleted. I wonder why our immigration records for entering Malaysia had been deleted?” 

Diamond ring 

Earlier on, senior counsel Karpal Singh, who is holding a watching brief for Altantuya’s family, asked Uuriintuya, a mother of three, what made her certain that several items she had been asked to identify by the authorities belonged to Altantuya.

“I remember the watch because her (friend) Burmaa (Oyunchimeg) and Altantuya bought it in Hong Kong while the earrings were bought from a shop in Mongolia.

“I think the ring, she told me her boyfriend bought had for her. I believe the boyfriend was (Abdul) Razak (Baginda),” Uuriintuya told the court to gasps of surprise from the gallery.

She added that it was a diamond-studded gold ring.

The trial is expected to run for a month and to hear testimonies from 30 to 40 prosecution witnesses. Hearing continues tomorrow.

Appearing for the prosecution is deputy public prosecutor Tun Majid Tun Hamzah.
